IPOs Hitting Market
Initial Public Offerings (IPOs) worth Rs 3,160 crore will be launched by companies next week. They are hoping to benefit from an equity market awash with liquidity and a sharp increase in new retail investors.
The government-imposed lockdown to combat COVID-19 led to the stock seeing their lows in March. But now, they have rebounded more than 50%. A long spell of dry primary markets has been ended with this rally.
Senior Vice-President and Head of Capital Market strategy and investments at Sharekhan by BNP Paribas Gaurav Dua said, “There is a flush of IPOs from mid-sized firms to take advantage of the buoyant market conditions and a significant rise in retail participation. More importantly, there is a willingness to pay premium valuation to firms with differentiated business models and a reputed management team,"
